NO DANGER; 

OR, 

"THE WHITE FLAG." 



•<>•- 




WA/- HEN I was a very 
little girl, I was 
travelling one day to Man- 
chester with my mamma. 
We had to go a long railway

journey, in order to reach 
the place to which we were 
going, but all was new to 
me, and I liked to watch 
the people getting in and 
out of the carriages. 

Mamma gave little books 
to all our fellow-passengers ; 
and I was very much in- 
terested in watching the 
different ways in which

the little books were re- 
ceived. 

At last at one station — 
I think it was Crewe — 
an old man got into the 
carriage. He had a nice 
face, and looked both happy 
and sad, and I wondered 
what made him have that 
look upon his face. 

When mamma gave him

a little book, and spoke to 
him of Jesus, the sad look 
quite went away from his 
face, and he smiled and 
said, " Ah, yes ! I too love 
the Lord Jesus." 

I think mamma had 
noticed the sad look on 
his face, for she said some- 
thing to him about the 
" Comforter," and about

God being " the God of all 
comfort and consolation." 

Then I saw the old man 
bend forward and tell her 
that only the week before 
his wife had died ; " fallen 
asleep in Jesus," I think 
he said, 

" I should like to tell you 
something about her, if you 
would let me," the old man 



said ; and mamma told him 
she would like very much 
to hear about her. 

"I am a station-master, 
at a small station on the 
line/' he said ; " and my 
wife used often to sit in the 
little window of our parlour, 
and watch me waving the 
different coloured flags as 
the trains came in. We

both loved the Lord Jesus, 
and used often to speak 
together of Him we loved 
so dearly, and of His great 
salvation. She was an 
invalid, and at last she 
began to droop rapidly. 

" One evening she called 
me to her, and said, 'John, 
there will be a flag held 
out to-nieht — a flag" in the

hand of Jesus. It will not 
be a red flag, for there is 
no danger ; and it will not 
be a green flag, for, thank 
God, there is no doubt ; 
but it will be a pure white 
flag, for all is perfect safety 
and peace, and I am very 
nearly at my journey's end.' 
And that night my wife 
died." 




I cannot remember any- 
more of the old man's story. 
dear children ; but when- 
ever I see the white flag 
waved, I think of the 
evening at the little way- 
side station, when the sick 
woman's earthly journey 
was ended, and in perfect 
safety she went home to 
God. 



12 No Danger. 



Would there be a white 
flag, or a red flag held out 
to-night, if you were called 
to your journey's end, dear 
child ? 

Dear little reader, what 
do you see in the bleeding 
hand of Jesus ? a white 
flag assuring you of peace 
and safety through His 
precious blood. Or do you

see Him wave the red flag 
warningyou of yourdanger? 
If the latter, won't you trust 
Him now while He offers 
you salvation ? 






HYMN. 

Oh, happy child ! whose every sin 
Is put away by Jesus' blood ; 

All spotless, clean, and pure within- 
Made fit to meet a Holy God. 

Oh, happy child ! to whom the Lord 
Will not impute a guilty stain, 

Because his sins were all transferred 
To Christ, the Lamb who once was 
slain. 

He knows himself a wretch undone, 
Unworthy of a Saviour's love ; 

Yet rests on Jesus' blood alone, 

And knows he'll reign with Him 
above.
